This is something Very Concerning to NPR, which seems to forget that the Cult of Climastrology has been attempting to terrify kids for decades
Bertha Vazquez has taught earth science for more than twenty-five years.
“For many years I covered the basic standard, probably like most people in the country do.”
Then one day she says she decided to throw all that out the window when she saw former Vice President Al Gore speak at the University of Miami at a screening of An Inconvenient Truth, his documentary about climate change.
“And it really … hit me. This is 2007 and, I’ve got to tell you, I lost sleep,” Vazquez says.
So, instead of actually teaching science and reality, she had a meltdown and decided to teach leftist politics.
“You can’t depress the hell out of them … if you want them to start looking for solutions,” she says. “So I don’t really go there. Do I feel that way personally? Yes … but in class I put on my happy face.”
A pivotal moment in Vazquez’s class often comes when her students open an app called Eyes on the Rise, where they plug in their address and learn how far they live above sea level.
“One kid will say, ‘I’m 10 feet above sea level. I’m going to be OK,'” Vazquez explains. “I’ll say ‘Yeah, you’ll be on a little hill, but what about everybody else around you? We’re all in this boat together.’ “
It’s no wonder kids are neurotic and terrified, along with being hot house flower basket-cases, when they are subjected to this mularky and doomsaying. Fortunately, the same people have created economic situations where these kids are graduating and have no job prospects, so they hunker down in their parent’s basement.
